IWCA Seeking Comments on Window Cleaning Safety Standard

The International Window Cleaning Association is reminding interested and affected members of the public that the deadline to comment on the IWCA I-14 Window Cleaning Safety Draft Standard is Monday, Oct. 27. The standard is intended to serve as a guide for window cleaners, regulatory agencies, manufacturers, architects, consultants, designers, and building owners. The initial version of this standard was published in 2001. From that time, the I-14 committee has been making revisions to the standard based on comments and questions from all facets of the industry.

IWCA asks that any comments on the draft be submitted by email to Mandie@robstan.com or by U.S. Postal mail to the IWCA, located at 400 Admiral Blvd., Kansas City, Mo. 64106. Instructions for submitting comments are as follows:

1. Cite the paragraph where a change is proposed
2. Suggest proposed wording for the change
3. Provide rationale (which may include technical data) for the change

IWCA says that if comments are not received in this format, the committee may not address them but adds that all comments submitted by the Oct. 27 deadline will be reviewed by the committee at its next scheduled meeting.
